Thinking of You!

Hi, there!

There is a fun challenge going on this month with the theme "CASE ME IF YOU CAN" to celebrate City Crafter's 8th birthday!  How fun and exciting!  I had to join the challenge
because my sweet friend, Ros Crawford, is the featured designer this week.  And, we are to case her lovely card.  I always admire Ros's water color and design skills!  So, I thought I'd give it a try.  Here is Ros's beautiful card that we are to case...

And, here is my card...

For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with a die cut panel using an MFT die.  The background was water colored using distress inks of broken china and twisted citron.  The flower image and sentiment embossed in gold are from Altenew.  Pearl cotton tied in a bow to finish the card.

Thanks so much for visiting here today.  Take care and have a lovely day!

  5. Oh, this is absolutely stunning, Maria! You perfectly captured the beautiful watercolor look of Ros' card. Love that bit of Twisted Citron as that is one of my most favorite colors. Your gold embossed flower is so elegant, too. Great shabby chic combo!
